Verdict

A typically wide open handicap with the narrow vote in favour of LEGAL THRILLER. Jim Bolger's filly readily surpassed her achievements as a 2-y-o when fourth in a Roscommon handicap over further back in June and the return to 1m promises to suit on that evidence. Dark Magic, Dance Emperor and Roving Mission are just a trio of others to consider.

  1. LEGAL THRILLER (IRE)
  2. DARK MAGIC
  3. DANCE EMPEROR (IRE)
